Please note:

The actual pairs of earrings in the photo have been sold. Your pair will be made from diamonds from the same parcel of stones, and will be close in appearance to the ones you see here. As each stone is a unique specimen, your earrings will be slightly different, but every bit as lovely. My current selection of stones ranges from white to pale silver. Yours may be anywhere in this range.

This is a custom, made-to-order piece- my production time on these earrings is approximately 2 weeks. They ship using Air Mail Small Package, which does not have a tracking number from Vancouver, Canada, comes fully insured, and takes approximately 4-10 business days to arrive in the USA.

The final photo shows one of these B-sized earrings in my ear. My ear piercings are stretched out to a 10 gauge hole, so these little earrings do not sit well in them. In regular-sized piercings the earrings sit more flush to the ear- I have used the photos to give you an idea of scale.

These little post earrings are made from a nicely-matched set of rough diamonds. My diamonds are all conflict free. These are diamonds in their crystal cluster form- diamonds come in numerous formations. The set you see here are white, and are around the 3-4mm range. These are my Size B diamonds.

The diamonds are set in 14k white gold pronged posts. I can also create a pair of these using 14k yellow gold, at the same cost. If you prefer your rough diamonds on the more silver end of the spectrum, I can also make a pair using silver-gray stones.

If you would like to discuss a set of diamond studs in other colours and diamond formations, I can also make these with diamond cubes, and polished diamond slices, in colours from chocolate to cream. I can even do a set using tiny (2-3mm) pink diamond cubes. I can also create a pair of these earings using larger stones. Please get in touch for estimates, as the stone costs vary from the diamond clusters.

The backings on these earrings are very snug-fitting silicone. They will ensure that your latest treasures stay in your earlobes, where they belong.

Shipping- please read: These ship with Air Mail Small Package, unless otherwise requested by you. This method has no tracking number, and a 4-10 business day (estimated, not guaranteed) travel time from Canada to the USA. If you would like a tracking number, or a faster shipping method (anywhere from three business days to overnight), please get in touch for an estimate prior to purchasing.

Frequently asked questions about Specimental

I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.

If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net
All of my pieces come ready to present as gifts, in attractive foil stamped jewelry boxes, enclosed in a lovely Chinese faux silk gift bag.

If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.

I am happy to ship to your workplace, a friend, or a relative, when secrecy is necessary. The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
Our hands are busy objects, and any ring worn on a finger can become accidentally damaged. All rings need regular maintenance. Make sure you are buying your raw diamond ring from a jeweler with the knowledge and experience needed to ensure your stone stays put. Ask them about their warranty and their repair/upkeep policy. Look at how frequently they work with raw diamonds, and assess whether they have the technical experience to create a ring that will last your lifetime.
I stand behind each piece of jewellery I make. If something goes wrong with your ring, at any time- you slam your finger in a drawer and crush the band, you break a prong, you smash and crack your stone- you can count on me to support you with the repair.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.

There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me. I cannot recycle your gold. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at treloar@telus.net

Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via treloar@telus.net to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
A raw diamond is an exceptionally difficult stone to set properly. Their unique shape means that a custom setting needs to be fabricated for each and every stone. The way in which the setting is closed around the diamond must be approached in a very particular fashion.

I began setting these stones into my rings in 2009, when only a small handful of jewelers were working with this type of stone. As the appeal of raw diamonds has exploded, countless numbers of jewelers are now incorporating them into their designs. I have set thousands of raw diamonds into my pieces since then.
